If you’re not a believer in miracles, wait until you see this.
Canadian airline WestJet has once again outdone itself. In the company’s fourth installment of its hugely-popular annual holiday videos, the airline set out to perform 12,000 miracles in 24 hours. That’s one miracle for every single employee with the company.
While previous years have seen lavish gifts like horses and big-screen TVs given away, this one focused more on “mini” acts of kindness in various parts of the world. We’re talking about things like trimming bushes for the elderly in Florida, or buying a store’s entire supply of coconuts in Jamaica so they could be given away for free on the street. Blankets for the homeless, a donation to the SPCA–small gestures that clearly went far in the lives of so many.
But this year wasn’t entirely void of some the larger, higher-end presents.
A family who had lost a father and a husband to cancer were given a free trip to Disney World. A Canadian veteran injured in Afghanistan was awarded a free trip to Hawaii. An entire studio audience at the Ellen show was given two round-trip tickets to Vancouver.
“Miracles do happen when we all work as one,” it says in the video.
